Network is being upgraded at work, so I can't blog during the day. Anyway, the following exchange from yesterday's press briefing caught my attention.
Q - Earlier today, the President said, and encouraged Americans to not use gasoline unnecessarily, to not take trips that were not absolutely necessary. Would the President curtail his own travel to the region, since he can be in touch by --Sure, Scott. The hoi polloi are asked to conserve, but "it's important" for the oligarchs to travel in their 747s and their entourages of a dozen Lincoln Town Cars.
The whole thing is a joke as Dear Leader can't do a thing about it, and he's so ADD anyway that anything he hears he won't comprehend. Let's face it: The reason "it's important for [this] President of the United States to travel to the region" is that he's desperately trying to regain the massive amount of political capital he's lost in the last month.
